Hi, I’m Charlene!

After nearly 25 years in church work, most recently as the director of a church counseling center, I have found myself increasingly burdened for women just like you, struggling with issues of identity, self-worth, depression, anxiety, abuse, trauma, relationship difficulties, or loss.

It is my passion to combine the truths of Scripture with helpful psychological interventions so that women can experience the joy of inner healing that overflows into relationships and impacts future generations.

Client’s Testimonials

Charlene is an expert at counseling using a client centered approach. From the moment we first walked into her office she radiated and communicated unconditional positive regard with empathy. Due to her excellent interpersonal skills, trustworthiness, flexibility, cultural sensitivity, and self-awareness a bond of mutual trust, liking, respect, and caring developed quickly between both her and my daughter and myself. Charlene helped us to set realistic goals that were engaging and inspiring with a more optimistic outlook while educating us on mental, emotional, and spiritual health as well. She equipped us with the practical tools that were vital for us to make it through the crisis we were going through. Because Charlene accepted us as we were, met us where we were, and had the self-awareness to be with us in our journey the results were true healing, transformation, and saved lives!


Counseling isn’t always an easy process, especially when dealing with emotional wounds and trauma. During our time together, Charlene’s office becomes a safe place to share my heart. Charlene exudes warmth, listens carefully without judgment and patiently comes alongside to help me get to the root of the problem. Through her practical and biblical advice I have had much healing. Charlene is wonderful!


Charlene has a gift for creating a safe space that both allows you to feel freedom to truly express yourself and feel validated in your experiences and emotions. She has thoughtful and gentle insights, as well as practical tips. I cannot recommend her enough.


I highly recommend Charlene Richardson as a professional counselor. I met with her mainly to deal with my narcissistic friendship, but I also sought counsel to obtain balance in ministry versus maintaining personal care, learning how to establish better relationship boundaries, and strengthening my personal conflict resolution skills. Her biblical and psychological expertise are a perfect blend that can help clients struggling in many areas to understand, grow and find healing and restoration for their personal conflicts.


Charlene has a gentle way of guiding those around her to reach their full potential. She is an excellent listener and really focuses in on what the client is saying and the needs behind the words. She then gently guides her clients toward thoughts that are healing and helps the client achieve new heights of functioning.


Charlene has a true gift of listening and compassion. She makes you feel welcome and heard from the moment you walk in. You truly feel as though she cares deeply, and you sense her desire to help you think clearly. I cannot recommend her highly enough.


When I had to fly out of state to help my son who was in a difficult mental and psychological state, we called Charlene for immediate counseling for him and also for me to know how to help him. They were able to form a quick bond long distance so she could help him through it. Charlene is caring and insightful and a life saver.


Charlene is so kind, compassionate, and intuitive. She is a wonderful counselor. I wish I could shout from the rooftops how dynamic she really is!


Charlene is an empathetic counselor, whose kindness and insight gives clients the courage to process and face the issues that are robbing them of joy and peace. She is one who will faithfully walk alongside you through life’s troubles, gently pointing out fresh insights and enabling healthy growth.


Charlene exudes patience, comfort, and professionalism. She has always been there for me and for that I am so appreciative. Knowing that I NEVER have to say, “Please keep this confidential” gives me such great peace!
